    The Midway? Really? Did you serve in her?
    Yes, and we were prisoners of the Ayatollah at the time of the failed rescue of the hostages. We called it Gonzo Station.

    I was being serious there...The Midway was only decomissioned recently (early 2000's maybe) She served in the gulf war. Since I don't know your age, I thought maybe you had. I could have if I had been in the Navy...

    So was I, we were the EW det in Midway [79-80] during that time and we actually did call it Gonzo Station and did refer to it as being the Ayatollah's prisoners since we were not going anywhere, but, in circles.

    The ship went to Perth instead of Kiwi Land.

    Reminds me of an appropriate bit of cowboy logic: " A tough guy never has to tell you he's tough, same with an honest guy"

    Truer words have never been spoken! Every guy I've ever met that was quick to tell you about how he was the best at this or that, was full of it.
    Guys that are good, don't need to brag.

    My good buddy, used to be my foreman, made it a point to fire guys like this BEFORE lunch on their first day. Didn't even let them get half a day in.
    It was hilarious. One older guy told him "Son, I can run anything you got". That dude got fired before 9am.

    Somehow, the fates should allow, you, and Orchidman, and I to set down and burn some steaks and dispose of a few dozen beers. And record it

    I can't vouch for the steaks, but I have seen Ned and Alec consume prodigious quantities of pork BBQ, roast deer shoulder, and more than a few drinks of various kinds. If you can make it to south Tennessee Memorial Day weekend, I'll guarantee you'll have a good time with a bunch of these guys and gals! The 6th. annual Southeast Shoot is getting closer every day.

    I am bringing halibut and salmon that I caught in Alaska last year down south this year.

    As far as the full of poo people-- I really have no room for the extra poo in my life. I can choose my friends, whom I associate with and do business with. No room for them.

    If you had the correct clearance you would have been in an aircraft that could have detected it from 20,000 ft. Prowlers were never so equiped. Cobra Ball, (certain tail #'s) was.
    Thats why they went to the ICAPII, had a LGM radar (little green men)
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    What other type of guy do you expect to be able to sell a Jennings to? :jester:

    (No offense meant - you've been here long enough and learned enough to know that you need to sell them, or make cigarette lighters out of them)

    OK...gotcha. And yep, we are pretty much contemporaries. I joined the Air Force in 1977.

    Where at in south Tenn? I'm just down in southern GA, so it's not a long stretch. Mainly will depend on money and work schedules, etc.

    I wouldn't doubt that the Cobra Ball (RC135S) birds had that...LOL. Even with all the clearances we had, when the guys from Security Services and E-Systems had the back end stuff spun up the maintainers weren't allowed back there. All we could do was go into the cockpit and power up the aircraft. When all that electronic wizardry was off it just looked like a bunch of Star Wars stuff...

    People wouldn't believe the capabilities we had, even back in the late 70's.

    It was a neat airplane to crew.

    My cousins in Alaska treated us to some Buffaloed Halibut when they were home a few years ago, I ate until I had to unbutton my pants. I am with you on the poo producing folks, me and the wife are well past our point with a couple in Scouts with us.

    I would argue the fact that these things are to big and bulky, but that didn't seem to stop the guy with the revolver in jail lol. I was expecting an "Ataboy," at least for selling them. You guys oughta be proud, steering a youngin away from cheap knockoffs lol.

    Yep, I met one, just last night. Scary thing was, he was in uniform. I all but expected a South-Parkish "Respect mah a-THOR-i-tay!" by the time our encounter was done.

    We had arrested this guy for shop lifting a chain saw, and he pled not guilty and it went to a full jury trial. Anyway hes on the witness stand telling about his military service record and how he was stationed in Hanoi in 1969. The judge stops him and said , well what was your duty there? the guy tells him well it was top secret. The judge, as it happens was Army intelligence throughout most of the Vietnam War, and politely explained to him that the only US servicemen in Hanoi were POW's. Then the judge turns to me and said (and im quoting here) " Get this lying piece of sh** out of my court room" and tacked more time onto him for perjury.
    So Officer, why did you shoot my client 8 times? Uh, the magazine ran dry.

    I used to know this guy on the cops who would brag about being in every branch of the Armed Services at one time or another. His best story was while serving in Viet Nam as a special forces type, he killed a North Vietnamese General with his bare hands using a garotte. Needless to say, the rest of us who had to endure these absurd tales would be hysterically laughing once he left the scene.

    Close to Huntsville Alabama. Look up "Dellrose TN" on Yahoo Maps.

    Probably was there with Jane Fonda or maybe his knowledge of geography was bad and he meant Saigon.

    Where do you food shop? The closest place I could find that looked like it has a commercial district is Ardmore or maybe Pulaski.

    I found that to be the case when we visited there, must be 20-30 miles to get to a big store, using paved roads at least.

    That's good living!! Jerry and Mary have their own slice of heaven. We are 18 miles from the nearest big store ourselves.

    Fayeteville or Pulaski.........when I visit lol.

    Closest big store....HA! I live out in the country a little way myself, and it's about 50 feet to the SUPERMARKET! If it's a vegetable, and it grows in "nawth Fladah", I probably have some of it planted! Give me one acre of good dirt, and I'll feed 4 people all year if I can freeze and can the excess!
  • TeachTeach Senior Member Dellrose TNPosts: 18,428 Senior Member
    I do a lot of food shopping about 20 feet up a tree with a 6.5-06, or just out the back door. The garden usually has tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers of several varieties, and sometimes a few cornstalks. Fayetteville and/or Pulaski has most of the "civilized" facilities we need, especially since Mary has worked at the county hospital in Fayetteville for 20-something years, and the Wal-Mart there has a well-stocked reloading department. The nearest "big city" would be Huntsville, Alabama, about 40 miles southeast. The nearest neighbor is about 1/4 mile down the road, just close enough to be handy, but far enough away we don't cross paths too often. Of course, around here folks for 5 miles in any direction are "neighbors" when anyone is in need! I've seen $10,000.00 raised overnight to help a family whose house burned down, and they had all the clothes they needed and all the food they could eat donated in about the same time frame.
